It certainly was not a good idea to leave it until now to get this post finished. Despite the memorable score-line I can barely remember it, the excitement of the international break overshadowing everything else. Even a 4-1 win over Freiburg’s local rivals it seems. It was not only the Baden-Württermburg derby but also a match-up between Jogi’s team and Hansi’s team.
Going into the international break, Freiburg were in second place, since Bochum managed to find their way past 1860 München. Even if that hadn’t been the case, Freiburg could not have topped the table anyway, Sandhausen’s late consolation goal prevented such a thing being possible. But still it’s all good, four wins out of five and they’re keeping pace with Bochum. Tonight they visit Kaiserslautern who in their last game lost 3-1 to Heidenheim and who so far have not looked like the promotion contenders they consider themselves to be. After their 3-1 victory against Duisburg on MD1 they have failed to impress so far.
Freiburg weren’t the only one scoring a lot of goals on MD5, also getting in on the act were Eintracht Braunschweig in a 6-0 defeat of Karlsruher SC. If they had gotten one more goal, they would have beaten the record set by SV Sandhausen a few weeks ago when they knocked Paderborn for six. Obviously getting a copy of Freiburg’s match is my no.1 priority every week, but this time around it was getting to see KSC’s game that was all so exciting. A little piece of history on my hard-drive.
Exciting as that is, it’s not the best part of that weekend. That honour goes to Grifo and his very special GIF:
